I am a young filmmaker who has worked on several public television documentaries as a writer/producer, and am now working on an independent project. I am seeking a bold and creative actress with a true love for the craft for my latest project focusing on the challenges facing young, pregnant women in today's society.
I am a member of the "new realist" school of filmmaking. This format is not to be confused with documentary filmmaking. All scenes will be outlined, if not scripted.
This film will focus on the horrors of the 21st Century (specifically the warlike, capitalist system that George Bush has imposed on the world). It will be political, and it will be provocative. It will begin with you playing a hopeful, young, religious woman seeking happiness and fulfillment. It will conclude with you shaving your head and having an abortion.
Please note that all actresses must be willing to become pregnant, have an actual abortion, and be willing to have the procedure filmed. All associated medical expenses will be covered. I believe that this sacrifice will make a powerful message about the inhuman, fascist world we are beginning to see.
Please send a professional head shot and a list of references.
I look forward to hearing from talented and excited women for this project.
